Lesson 7— Teacher Training Introduction to "The Hydrogen Atom —As Viewed by Quantum Mechanics
Professor Pimentel emphasizes the advantages of the quantum mechanical model of the atom, as presented in the classroom film, over the planetary model. He discusses the relationship of quantum number to the spatial distribution of the electron in the one-electron atom. He then considers the screening effect of electrons at lower energy levels upon those at higher energy levels, and the relationship of the quantum states of the electrons to the periodic table.
